Tyranitar is also my favorite Pokemon ever. Ninetails always had a good design. Abomasnow is kinda silly in appearance and concept (Half yeti, half tree). I always found Politoed to be worse in appearance to its sister evo, Poliwrath (better name, too). As for in-game viability, T-Tar has always had great stats and typing and is one of the 6 Pseudo Legendaries, though is typing is less than ideal. Ninetails and Politoed are decent in-game, though I never used them. Also, they were clearly forgotten about in the public eye until they got their Perma-Weather abilities. Unlike those two, who can fight on their own, Abomasnow is infamous for having the most weaknesses of any Pokemon and his only use is summoning the least useful weather effect. --- Other M is the One More Day of Metroid http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4014/5138578909_05b321131a_z.jpg
I like Tyranitar the most, but I like the weather Ninetales generates more than sandstorm.
Well, he said design-wise. While their Weather abilities would fall under that, I.E. battle design, it's still only a fairly small part of their overall "Design". --- Other M is the One More Day of Metroid http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4014/5138578909_05b321131a_z.jpg
